Service Description

In partnership with Mount St Helens Institute July 25 4:00pm start time Join me and MSHI Guides on a photography hike to Spirit Lake, which was forever transformed by the 1980 eruption. Patrick will offer practical photography instruction in the field while a naturalist guide will offer you insight into the incredible natural and human history of Spirit Lake. Train your cameras on the vibrant wildflowers in bloom, streams, waterfalls or the sun-bleached logs afloat in the lake since the 1980 eruption. This trip begins in the afternoon and concludes after sunset to catch the glow of evening light. Sunset will occur at 7:52 PM. OPTIONAL CAMPING OFFER for the Spirit Lake Hike only: Due to the remote driving location of this adventure, for an extra $15 upon registration, you may camp with our guides at our private MSHI Field Camp to avoid a long drive back to civilization after dark. Following the program, you’ll be escorted to camp located a few miles from the trailhead. You must provide your own camping equipment and food or you are welcome to a cot in one of our large wall tents. Camp offers toilets and water, but no other services. Additional $15 for camping.
